InScribe

So what is InScribe?

First, InScribe connects all sections of a course (ex: all PSY-110HA sections).  Students will first see supplemental, open education resources about the topics being discussed in class.  If they choose to, they can move past these free assets to talk with others (Instructors and students alike) to ask questions, find answers, and share knowledge across course topics.  InScribe is essentially a crowdsourced tutoring solution.   InScribe has been successfully used at Arizona State University with their ALEKS program (their beginning math course).  At ASU, 55% of students used InScribe and they saw an increase in both grade and persistence rate – it was statistically significant.
